2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

09 F250 6.4 kicked code during a trip to Galveston(350 m from home). Auto parts store 4 reset because it was in constant regen. Recorded code and took into dealer. Had truck two days, told nothing they could do because code was not in computer (35K miles). Asked "what happens if it does this again" service manager told me "just don't drive to far from the dealer and bring it in next time". Both batts dead (37k). Noticed slight drip of coolant (46k miles). Dealer: both radiator hoses bad and needed replaced. $683. Not covered by warranty. Took to local shop. Determined bad o ring in the upper hose only (is covered by warranty). New hose ebay $44. $50 for local shop. No more Ford 4 me.

2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This 6.4L diesel F-250 is my fourth Ford deisel ( 2 - 7.3L's and one 6.0L ) and it seems to be the best engine design yet - had a slight fuel problem with the 6.0L. The 6.4L has plenty of power and the truck rides extremely well. Mileage is lousy, only 13 - 14 mpg( 4WD hurts )but the trade off in power and safety and comfort are worth it. Especially like the navigation system, Sync, power folding mirrors, and interior roominess. Wife loves the heated leather seats. The tailgate step is great as are the 6" cab steps in the chrome pkge. I would HIGHLY recommend getting the electic auxillary cab heater ( one of the only options I passed up ), because of the increased cooling system capacity. HAPPY

Review

Overall, this truck has performed well. However, at 6,400 miles the truck left me stranded on the side of the road at 4 a.m. "Miles to Empty" message center was reading 46 miles to empty (light had just illuminated 4 miles earlier) and truck lost power and died. Towed to Ford dealer. Had to pay over $150 in diagnostics because it was out of fuel. Ford will not acknowledge anything wrong with miles to empty calculator and was told to keep fuel tank 1/2 fuel to prevent problem. Ford customer svc was not helpful and refused to admit anything was wrong with the truck. Ford service tech admitted he's seen this before and Ford has a serious problem with these units. Last Ford purchase.


Favorite Features

Engine and transmission very smooth & powerful. Interior is akin to a luxury car.


Suggested Improvements

Improve quality of miles to empty calculator or remove completely if not able to improve upon the design. Fuel economy could be better.

Review

Ok this is my story. My first truck was a 2008 f250 5.4 cc the windshild had a bad leak and water got into the drivers side dash the truck developed some electricial problems so the dealership had to buy it back as a lemon. Thinking this was a fluke I bought another f250 sd cc 5.4 v8 two months later the windshild wipers would not turn off. The dealership told me it was a bad wiper motor. The gas mileage is bad at only 13mpg average. But hay you dont buy a big truck to worry about gas you buy it to haul pull whatever.The truck with the 5.4 is not a power house. I pull a 28ft travel trailer the truck has no problem susspenion wise but the 5.4 realy lacks the pulling power almost scarey


Favorite Features

The looks inside and out


Suggested Improvements

better build quality. more power from 5.4 v8
